First off, this is very detailed and directed toward females for advice. I am sexually active with my boyfriend, unprotected. I started Sprintec birth control pills toward the beginning of April. I missed my first pill of the pack, as well as another about two weeks later. For this month, May, I missed three pills in a row, but took them in the same day. The following day, I quit altogether. So, I've been off of Sprintec for about two weeks. Next week I'm supposed start my period, around Wednesday, but I started bleeding this past Tuesday. At first it was light, but it turned into more of a normal flow. Now it has lightened up again. Usually my periods are like clockwork. If they are off, it's always late, never early.
Additional problems: itchy eyes, stuffy nose, extreme fatigue, hunger, cramping, vivid dreams. Don't know if any of those symptoms matter. Thanks in advance!
Okay you need to talk to your doctor because birth control pills are obviously not for you. It takes a few months (depending on your bc) for it to begin working. When you miss a pill, you need to read the instructions that come with your pill pack so you know what to do. If you miss a certain amount of pills (depending on your body), you will get your period. You should take a pregnancy test. If you aren't pregnant, please go see your doctor and learn about the way your body works.
ah has to do with the pill.... like your not suppose to miss days and if you do dont take it all at once like 3 pills just by missing the days your suppose to take it i think throws your period off cause the pill also helps regulate your period.. i think maybe call your doctor or schedule another appointment to maybe not take the pill since you forget theres other stuff you can get
First, I'd probably take a pregnancy test just to be sure. I'd then schedule an appointment with my doctor and get on a different kind of birth control. You're obviously no good at remembering to take it daily and should consider other options that will not require you to take daily, otherwise at this rate, you're bound to get pregnant.
I started it to please my mother. I know it's stupid to think, but I haven't gotten pregnant and I've been with this guy for two years. Maybe it's luck. Maybe it's something else. But I didn't want to be put on anything in the first place.
